Priest convicted over child porn

BBC News

A Catholic priest who pleaded guilty to 19 child pornography charges has been given a rehabilitation order.

Alexander Bede Walsh, 51, who served in Oxfordshire, was spotted on a train by a fellow passenger looking at indecent images on his laptop in March 2003.

Walsh, of Cheadle, Staffordshire, later resigned from his post at St John the Evangelist Church in Banbury.

He received a two-year community rehabilitation order at Oxford Crown Court on Monday.
